Russian Federation accuses USA coalition of hampering its anti-IS operation in Syria

Russia says US providing cover for Islamic State in Syria

Russia Posts Video Game Footage as 'Evidence' of US/ISIS Coalition

"This is the irrefutable evidence that there is no struggle against terrorism as the whole global community believes", the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement posted on Facebook along with photos.

In violation of a previously reached agreement, attack aircraft of the coalition entered the airspace over Abu Kamal to hamper the work of the Russian air force, the ministry said in a statement.

At least one of the photographs exactly matched a frame from a promotional video for a "AC-130 Gunship Simulator" computer game posted online in March 2015.

Researchers at Conflict Intelligence Team, a nonprofit group that investigates Russian military activities, subsequently reported that three other images shared by Russia as "irrefutable evidence" of USA forces assisting the Islamic State were actually taken from video released by the Iraqi Ministry of Defense in 2016. It's not actually from a drone, but from a video game.

In the corner of the image, however, a few letters of the developer's disclaimer can still be seen: "Development footage". After the images were called out by sharp-eyed readers on social media the Ministry of Defense immediately began taking the posts down. The statement wasn't even fully cropped out of the images that Russian Federation tweeted.

Tennessee Fires Butch Jones; Hoke Is Interim Coach
Hoke has been a head coach for 12 seasons, making stops at Ball State and San Diego State before arriving in Ann Arbor in 2011. Jones' firing comes one day after Tennessee (4-6, 0-6) fell 50-17 at Missouri for its fifth loss in its last six games.

Russian Federation alleges the USA is co-operating with so-called Islamic State by providing cover to fleeing IS militants.

It also accused the US-led coalition of carrying out air operations in the area to interfere with possible Russian strikes, and alleged that IS forces were disguising themselves as US-backed SDF fighters.

The Russian military is investigating claims that a civilian employee attached the bogus images, state-run media reported later Tuesday.

Earlier Tuesday, the MoD uploaded images on Facebook and Twitter, which it said were evidence that the USA were actually covering up Islamic State (IS, ISIS/ISIL) combat units. "So, again that is pretty consistent with what we have seen come out of Russian MoD, as being baseless, inaccurate and you know, completely false", he told a briefing with Pentagon reporters on Tuesday.

"We find this behavior particularly disappointing and inconsistent with the spirit of the November 11 joint statement by the President of the United States and the President of the Russian Federation", said Maj.
